Description

At the top of the Costa Rodona turn chairlift left and face the Coll Blanc pass. Facing north from there a ridge should go down on your left. Ride beside the Estadi Francesc Viladomat piste briefly on the very right side and then start dropping right; usually a couloir takes shape there but its not always a good reference. Be aware of if because if you ride too far down there is a cliff and will be impossible to access the area. Once there, its party time and good, steep riding awaits you. Just be aware of the boarder cross course below if has been snowing a lot and its not reshaped. Cross the course and keep riding on the mellow area underneath until you get back to the pistes.
